    `The Steakhouse is a must when visiting Galveston. The cuisine, wine selections and service are beyond first rate. The quality of the steaks is far puerile to that offered by other high end establishments. Finally, the welcoming attitude of each of the staff made our evening relaxing and truly memorable.

    Steak was over cooked, potato had a puddle of oil in the bottom. Not sure if it was from the Cheese or butter but it was awful.

    Jean Paul and his team are amazing. We enjoy each visit more and more. The chefs are extremely talented and diligent in their preparation of each dish. Delighted by the new sushi menu and the tomahawk steak was amazing. The poblano cream corn is a must. Soooo good.

    The service is top tier. The staff is extremely attentive. But after an oddly long wait for our entrees, the food arrived and was good, but not at the top tier. We would definitely come back; its elegant, upscale, and the food is very good, but it just wasnt enough to rate it a 5, maybe a 4.5. But if I have to pick a whole number, I'll round down. After spending over $200, we asked to order dessert to go and incurred a $1.35 take out fee. Obviously it's not the amount that matters, but it wasnt the right way to end a night that fell a little short of expectations.

    Jean Paul makes this restaurant the best that it can be. He makes you feel like you are visiting him at home. He's definitely a differentiator for it! Food was terrific. We had the prime rib and it was heavenly. Great crust and perfectly cooked. Definitely recommend! Bread and sides were also well prepared. The butter cake is definitely a must so save room!! Service was great but I was disappointed the server did not have any real recommendations on wines so we ended up selecting one we already knew - I guess a bit of training can help... Just be aware that the restaurant is small. Ask for a booth since these are nice and out of walkway. Unfortunately a large group of people (about 15+) came in and they immediately changed the ambiance with their noise level - that is why it's not a five for ambiance. If you are looking for a quiet date night you may want to inquire if there's a conference group coming in. If no big groups you'll be fine... Overall great experience and I can't help but go back to Jean Paul makes it great on top of very good food! I recommend.

    This is my husband’s and I favorite steak restaurant on Galveston Island. The food is always good no matter what you get. We normally get the filet mignon or the salmon which is always cooked exactly how we asked. For the sides we normally get a couple of these: mashed potatoes, broccoli, cream corn - which is FANTASTIC - the pork Mac and cheese and brussel sprouts. The sides are family size so they are shareable. MAKE RESERVATIONS because they are always booked up every night. There’s a bar and on weekends they normally have live music. It’s never too loud or disturbing no matter where you sit - either inside the small restaurant area or their tables by the bar and live music area. The maître d’ is great!!! He’s very very good at his job and making sure the restaurant is running smoothly. The waiters are all very professional and they honestly give great service. Highly highly recommend this restaurant. You won’t be disappointed!!!

    Restaurants in the hotel are very elegant and convenient, a little pricey though but I guess that's to be expected. I dined at the Steakhouse, the setting looked luxurious, the staff was remarkable and the food was very good, a little crowded but I guess that indicate it's popularity to come and enjoy a great meal. Overall, it's a great place to bring your second half, friends or whoever to dine in a luxury setting...

    I was quite disappointed. Paid a lot of money for a less than stellar meal. Service was less than great. Had to ask a server to find our waiter to order a second round of drinks. Then another person came to check on us at the end of the meal but then check brought by our initial waiter. Food was ok. My steak was overdone. And the place was loud. Really loud. Hard to hear my wife across the table.

    Our soft shelled crab came out burnt. My husband asked if there were any sides with his order and our waiter said no. It came with sides and enough for 4 people. My husband asked for 2 soft shelled crabs and the order came out with 2 plates; thank goodness for Jon Paul that he sent it back. Our waiter had some communication issues and was so busy that he just didn't care. Jon Paul was attentive but nothing else was done about our burnt crab. We have eaten soft shelled crab back in January 2022 and it was perfect. Quite disappointed with our dinner. Not sure we will be back.

    This was the best dinner experience I have had, service and atmosphere was wonderful, food was outstanding and we really had a great time. Wine selection was great and so was the cocktails.
